Solving Summer Chaos

When the kids are home all day, it's constant chaos - especially in the kitchen! Here's an easy solve to summer time meals


This post is sponsored by Red Baron but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Summer is a fantastic season, but if we're going to be real about it, it's a logistical nightmare for parents. The kids are out of school. Summer camps schedules create chaos and are constantly changing - one week it's art camp that starts at 9am and goes to noon, the next week it's all day sports camp, and on and on. Some weeks there is no camp at all, resulting in kids being home all day. That makes it really hard if you work from home like I do, and the constant inconsistent schedules make meal planning hard! Some weeks I grocery shop and we're out of food a few days later because everyone has been home; some weeks I toss rotten produce because nobody has been home to eat it. Red Baron stepped up to the plate to help you solve the summer food chaos problem with easy and delicious meals!

Our outdoor summer meals are casual - no shoes, no shirt, no problem! Jump in from the pool and eat in your suit:)

I really hope you caught the pizza party situation I posted to my Instagram Stories (complete with Italian music thanks to my husband!) because it was adorable... And I'm still cleaning flour off my floors from it. Henry has JUST decided that pizza is a food he now likes and will eat regularly. Slowly but surely that kid is backing up from "the pickiest eater in the world" cliff and accepting more foods, which makes me 1) happy that his diet is more diversified and 2) makes my life easier when meal planning. Win win. Go Henry!

Easy is the name of the game for us in the summer! Throw these in the oven and they're ready in 20 mins for a fast casual summer supper

While making pizza from scratch is a fun family activity, it took three hours for the dough to rise, an hour to make and bake it, and easily another hour to clean it up. Great for a Father's Day treat, but not practical for regular meals! Red Baron, on the other hand, is ready in under 20 minutes, cleanup takes less than 5, and there are flavor options for all palettes. Some day I'll try one of the fancier pizza topping combinations, but right now we're sticking to the classics - cheese and pepperoni. Both those go over well with the kids (and I can add veggies to my side).


Add a side of seasonal fresh fruit and an easy to clean up paper plate and our outdoor summer meal is complete

I love that I can grab a couple of these during my regular grocery runs and store them in the freezer. I don't need to worry about them going bad or if they'll "get eaten in time." Whenever we're having a chaotic day or the boys are extra hungry from summer camp, I can throw one in the oven and have it ready in minutes. Since Henry decided pizza is now on his discerning "approved to eat" list, we can all enjoy it! In my opinion, Red Baron is one of the best frozen pizza options on the market - I love the taste of their sauce, and the key to any pizza is great sauce!

If you've got kids at home this summer, you know the constant chaos struggle! Schedules are always changing, camp days and times are different every week and then there are the off weeks where everyone is home nonstop, and likely eating you out of house and home! Red Baron to the rescue with their easy, affordable meals that are ready in minutes and a breeze to clean up - not to mention a crowd favorite, even if you have one of the world's pickiest eaters like I do.

  5. NOW LIFE IS WORTH LIVING WITH THE HELP OF EDWARD JONES FINANCE

    Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com

  9. I actually much prefer cheap oven pizza than takeaway! Plus if your kid will only eat something that has ie sweetcorn on it, you can customise at home!
